Morocco’s elite crowd doesn’t want anyone else to discover this remote but strangely beautiful desert town on the Atlantic Coast of the Western Sahara, its becoming one of the world’s greatest wind and kite-board surfing destinations. Many come for its fledgling bohemian status: it’s a wild, remote, sun-drenched place with plenty of local Tuareg culture. Sleepy during the day thanks to the often-intense Saharan heat, the town comes alive after dark with lively cafes and restaurants.
